296. Matterport Unveils Reporting Tool to Showcase Carbon Reduction Achieved Using Digital Twins | #mttr #csgp

5/15/2024
Matterport Unveils Reporting Tool to Showcase Carbon Reduction Achieved Using Digital Twins SUNNYVALE, California, Wednesday, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), announced the launch of avoided emissions reporting for select enterprise customers, measuring the emissions savings associated with the use of Matterport’s digital twin platform. Developed with independent carbon accounting experts, the reports enable enterprise customers to understand the impact of emissions avoided by collaborating remotely instead of traveling to inspect facilities onsite. There has been a growing expectation from corporations to operate climate-consciously. Organizations of all sizes are making ambitious commitments to reduce their carbon footprint (GHG emissions) by pledging alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and setting science-based targets to limit global temperature rise to below 1.5 degrees Celsius. Matterport’s 3D digital twins are sustainability in action, providing tools to help businesses to reduce Scope 3 emissions for tasks that traditionally require travel to complete, such as tours, inspections, progress monitoring, change management, and more. The more 3D digital twins are incorporated into day-to-day operations, the greater impact they can drive towards an organization’s sustainability goals. For businesses with significant property portfolios and those that are globally dispersed, this life-like virtual collaboration also offers the ability to significantly reduce costs, while freeing up team members to work more productively remotely. “Enterprises increasingly need proof-of-value that their technology investments are both driving impact to the bottom line, and their overall carbon footprint,” said Qadira Harris, Senior Director of Global Responsibility at Matterport. “These new reporting capabilities quantify the sustainable impact of digital twins, empowering enterprises to streamline their property decisions with results they can stand behind.” A Fortune 100 Matterport customer said, “As a product owner, I want to provide users with sustainability benefits of my digital twin solutions. The avoided emissions report is informative with a concise format that contextualizes our aggregated impact.” Emissions avoided are calculated based on the reduction in business travel enabled by digital twins, taking into account factors such as the number of digital spaces created, geographic location, and site visits. Customer reports are tailored to their primary use cases—like property marketing, insurance, design and construction, or facilities management. These considerations are then balanced against the estimated emissions from creating and hosting each digital twin to determine the total emissions avoided. Matterport avoided emissions reports, currently available to select enterprise customers, to allow for a comprehensive assessment of sustainability gains. These reports will be broadly released later this year, with customer feedback informing further enhancements and scalability.

Our groundbreaking digital twin platform turns buildings into data to make every space more valuable and accessible.

291. New iGUIDE Lead Magnet Generates Real-Time Leads for Real Estate Professionals

5/2/2024
New iGUIDE Lead Magnet Generates Real-Time Leads for Real Estate Professionals The exclusive product feature lets buyers viewing iGUIDE’s 3D Virtual Tours request additional property details providing agents with instant leads. WATERLOO, Ontario, Tusday, April 30, 2024 – Planitar Inc., makers of iGUIDE, a proprietary camera and software platform for capturing and delivering 3D virtual tours and property data, today introduced iGUIDE Lead Magnet—an exclusive product feature designed to help real estate agents capture leads and get market feedback in real-time as prospective buyers view iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour property listings. iGUIDE Lead Magnet is an interactive pop-up element that appears in the iGUIDE Viewer as potential buyers explore real estate listings. The feature allows buyers to request more details by providing their contact information in exchange for receiving access to additional visuals via an email or SMS from the listing agent. The agent now can engage with the qualified lead as they choose. "This new product feature is about forging relationships in real estate,” said Alexander Likholyot, the CEO and co-founder of Planitar Inc. “Even after Covid-19, industrywide adoption of 3D tours in real estate has barely crossed into double digits, as listing agents haven’t been able to capture feedback about a property or start a conversation with potential buyers within a 3D tour. The new iGUIDE Lead Magnet solves both problems by letting buyers share their contact information to get access to additional property visuals delivered in the detailed version of iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour while encouraging buyers to ask questions and provide feedback about the listing. This exchange gives agents a way to contact and engage with qualified, interested buyers and connect with potential future listing prospects.” In addition to generating real-time leads 24/7, iGUIDE Lead Magnet empowers buyers to provide valuable feedback directly on the virtual listings, offering agents insights they can share with sellers. Real estate professionals have the flexibility to streamline their communication process by automatically responding to leads via email or SMS, saving time while still delivering personalized responses tailored to each potential buyer's inquiries. Here’s how it works: 1. A pop-up form appears in the iGUIDE Viewer after a prospective buyer explores the listing. 2. A prospective buyer can elect to provide their contact information for access to additional property visuals delivered via the detailed iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour. 3. The listing agent receives an alert, either by text or email, with the prospective buyer’s contact information. If configured, an automatic email is sent at the same time to the prospective buyer with the detailed iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour link. 4. The agent can choose to send an automatic or custom response, providing the buyer with the detailed iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour and engaging them into a conversation or arranging for a Virtual Showing if a curated agent-guided iGUIDE experience is desired. Key features and benefits of iGUIDE Lead Magnet include: 1. Buyer lead data is sent in real-time via email notification or SMS. 2. Prospective buyers are encouraged to provide valuable feedback that the listing agent can share with the sellers. 3. Minimal effort is required by an agent to set up and maintain while retaining control over listing visuals, as well as client communications. 4. iGUIDE Lead Magnet takes advantage of the unique way iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tours can hide and show visuals and/or rooms creating two unique iGUIDE versions. 5. There is no additional cost above the iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tour. The exclusive, new product feature is available on all iGUIDE 3D Virtual Tours (Instant, Standard & Premium). 6.

290. BMO Accelerates Branch Transformation at More Than 500 Locations Nationwide Using Matterport Digital Twins | #mttr

5/2/2024
BMO Accelerates Branch Transformation at More Than 500 Locations Nationwide Using Matterport Digital Twins BMO, North America’s eighth largest bank by assets, drives sustainability and efficiencies on branch rebranding and design management using Matterport’s digital twin platform SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR) announced that BMO (NYSE: BMO), the eighth largest bank in North America by assets, has leveraged Matterport’s digital twin platform to streamline site visits across its physical footprint for multiple areas of the bank. BMO provides a broad range of personal and commercial banking, wealth management, global markets, and investment banking products and services to 13 million customers. In December 2021, BMO announced its plans to acquire Bank of the West (BOTW). Part of that process included transforming 503 BOTW retail branches to BMO, each of which required rebranding and technology updates. With a need to review each of the locations to create plans for rebranding and other work, BMO utilized Matterport’s Capture Services, the company’s global network of expert capture technicians, to swiftly generate 3D digital twins of each space, including accurate floor plans. In three months, BMO digitally captured all 503 BOTW branches, saving costs for travel and site visits, and approximately 6,000 hours of equivalent survey work. Previously, the team responsible for this type of work relied on multiple on-site visits to each location to scope the design and technology updates required to bring the interior of the branch to comply with BMO brand standards. Critical documentation like floor plans was often missing from record drawings, creating an early design hurdle. BMO also leveraged Matterport’s exportable schematic floor plans to create a full complement of assets in a fraction of time, further reducing site visits. “BMO’s Digital First model is critical to how we do business. That’s why engaging Matterport was so important for this work. It enabled us to create digital twins that not only significantly reduced branch disruptions but also saved time and money,” said Lisa Near, BOTW Program Manager, North American Physical Channels, BMO. “Our work with BMO is a great demonstration of the scale and precision our customers can expect from Matterport,” said Jay Remley, Chief Revenue Officer, Matterport. “Our global network of capture professionals enables organizations just about anywhere in the world to manage the transition and operations of property acquisitions more seamlessly, helping brands like BMO get up and running faster, with a fraction of the time and resources.” Since the BOTW project, the platform has seen widespread demand across multiple departments in BMO. As BMO takes on over 50 projects each year across the US, the bank expects to continue reducing branch visits while saving significant time, money, and carbon emissions with Matterport’s end-to-end solutions. Matterport is leading the digitization of the built world, helping customers better access, understand and utilize properties through its next-generation 3D digital twin.

289. Why CoStar planned acquisition of Matterport is Good News for Competitors | #mttr #csgp

5/1/2024
Why CoStar planned acquisition of Matterport is Good News for Competitors Commentary and Analysis by Dan Smigrod Founder and Managing Editor We Get Around Network | WGAN-TV CoStar’s planned acquisition of Matterport this year is great news for all 3D/360 digital twin/virtual Tour platforms and software. (And, by extension, real estate photographers that offer virtual tours.) This may seem counterintuitive. CoStar Founder and CEO Andy Florance said during the CoStar earnings call Tuesday (23 April 2024) that he intends to make Matterport ubiquitous among all CoStar marketplace brands including: CoStar, LoopNet, Apartments.com, Homes.com and Ten-X. So, if Matterport becomes ubiquitous among all CoStar brands, how does this help competitors? The ways Matterport becoming ubiquitous, is key to understanding why Matterport competitors will also succeed faster too. For example: 1. CoStar Competitors Will Not Advertise CoStar: In its 10+ years, Matterport has always required its logo in each tour. While CoStar should offer a white-label version of Matterport (no Matterport branding) to show competitors that it welcomes their use of Matterport, it is more likely that the Matterport branding will morph into “Matterport - a CoStar Company” … That’s what big companies do. Google “box of Oreo cookies” to see examples of what’s likely coming soon to Matterport digital twins. If that happens, CoStar competitors will likely block Matterport digital twins from being used on their marketplace and encourage the use of all other 3D/360 digital twin platforms. Can you imagine Zillow allowing CoStar branding on its platform? Even if it did, Zillow likely would “move-up” other listings in Zillow search. Zillow already does this with its Zillow 3D Home tours. 2. More Free Matterport Digital Twin Captures: CoStar will likely include more Matterport digital twins captured for free in their top tier agent/broker marketing packages – if not all packages. For example, presently, Apartments.com, a CoStar company, includes Matterport digital twin capture in 3 of 4 of the Apartments.com ad packages. (LoopNet has similar style agent/broker advertising packages.) CoStar will likely add more Matterport capture services because it can make more money from agents and brokers buying its ad packages than selling Matterport digital twins as a standalone product to its various CoStar marketplace brands’ clients. (That’s Phase 1). CoStar can make more money by increasing the number of listing views and the time spent viewing a listing. Integrating Matterport Capture Services and VHT Studios (a Subsidiary of Matterport) Digital Pro package into all CoStar brands’ marketing packages will take time. That’s Phase 2. “We intend to make a much greater commitment to capturing 3D digital twins,” said Florance during the CoStar first quarter 2024 earnings call. Additionally, CoStar likely has hundreds of employees – not independent contractors – that do Matterport scanning (and other digital property marketing listing services). CoStar competitors will need to offer a similar 3D/360 digital twin option. It’s likely they will seek out other 3D/360 platforms to either buy or develop a co-marketing strategy. For example, Zillow’s ShowingTime+ Listing Showcase offers a Zillow 3D Home tour in its packages. According to a marketing video on the ShowingTime+ website: “Listing Showcase can flex with your business needs like per-listing purchase options and the choice to use your own photographer or book one through ShowingTime+ Listing Media Services for a turnkey media experience. Your AI powered Showcase listing will feature high res photography, room-by-room organization, a virtual tour and an interactive floor plan that connects the photography to the location in the home.” In December 2022, Zillow acquired VRX Media to create a national photographer network, elevating listing media through ShowingTime+ brand. In August 2023, Zillow acquired Aryeo for its network of real estate...

286. What CoStar's Acquisition of Matterport Means forReal Estate Photographers | #mttr #csgp

4/23/2024
How CoStar Acquiring Matterport Affects Real Estate Photographers that Offer Matterport Commentary and analysis by: Dan Smigrod Founder and Managing Editor We Get Around Network and WGAN-TV Atlanta, Georgia If you are like most of the 18,000+ monthly readers of the We Get Around Network Forum — a real estate photographer that offers Matterport to help sell, lease or rent residential and commercial real estate — you are likely wondering if the news Monday (April 22, 2024) that Matterport has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by CoStar Group is good news for you. Congratulations. You won the lottery. For real estate photographers that offer Matterport, the symbiotic relationship - like bees and flowers - of Matterport and CoStar will result in: 1. Increased demand for Matterport digital twins from CoStar clients not presently using Matterport 2. Increased demand for Matterport digital twins from CoStar clients using Matterport 3. Increase demand for Matterport digital twins from non-CoStar clients 4. Higher Add On prices for Matterport digital twins as we know them today 5. leverage Matterport’s spatial data 6. More demand for professional images, video and aerial services 7. More demand for related digital marketing services such as 3D/360/2D virtual staging 8. More Matterport Partners offering integrations for residential and commercial real estate 9. Matterport seamless integrations among Matterport, CoStar brands and enterprise clients CoStar excels at creating, acquiring and growing property marketplaces for selling, leasing, renting and managing residential and commercial real estate. And, as a result of being a very big client of Matterport for nearly 10 years — CoStar’s research shows that its marketplace listings with Matterport digital twins increases time spent viewing listings. That likely translates to: 1. Sellers using Matterport virtual tours get more offers, sooner resulting in more money 2. Real Estate agents and brokers win more and bigger premium listings 3. Buyers, lessors and renters have more confidence making decisions We Get Around Network Forum readers likely have used these talking points for years to help sell Matterport as an Add On for marketing and managing properties. According to the CoStar media release on Monday, “CoStar Group operates some of the most effective and widely recognized real estate information solutions and online property marketplaces in the world including Apartments.com, LoopNet, CoStar, and Homes.com, all of which feature Matterport’s 3D virtual tours. CoStar Group was one of the first adopters of Matterport’s technology, and currently has almost 300,000 Matterport digital twins available in the CoStar information product and online property marketplaces. Advertisers on CoStar Group marketplaces clearly recognize the value of Matterport virtual tours. In March 2024, there were over 7.4 million views of Matterport 3D Tours on Apartments.com, with consumers spending 20% more time viewing an apartment listing when Matterports were available. CoStar Group intends to utilize Matterports in a similar fashion on Homes.com to further enhance the most comprehensive agent, seller and buyer friendly residential portal on the market.” CoStar — a company that did 16 times gross revenue ($2.46 billion) versus Matterport’s gross revenue ($157.7 million) in 2023 — has the scale to aggressively market Matterport digital twins. Costar will likely, aggressively: 1. feature Matterport — and Matterport AI powered features — in all its marketplace listings 2. offer Matterport as an Add On 3. Include in its marketing bundles, Matterport’s Capture Services or the all-in-one offering from its VHT Studios subsidiary 4.

Matterport Surpasses One Million Subscribers, Extending Its Industry Leadership in Digital Twin Technology with Compelling SaaS Growth With 75x subscriber growth in just 5 years, the milestone reflects the company’s 3D capture ubiquity and SaaS-driven digital twin platform strategy SUNNYVALE, California, Tuesday, April 2, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), a pioneering leader in the digital twin and 3D capture space, proudly announces a monumental achievement in its company history, reaching one million subscribers to its digital twin cloud platform. This significant milestone underscores Matterport's unwavering commitment to innovation and its strategic Capture Ubiquity initiative, which has propelled the company into a new era of growth and success. In 2019, Matterport embarked on a bold journey to democratize 3D capture technology for everyone. By introducing affordable subscription tiers, supporting low-cost capture devices and smartphones, and launching the advanced Pro3 camera, Matterport has made 3D capture accessible to a broad audience. This approach has not only disrupted the industry but has also resulted in an impressive 75x subscriber growth in just five years, growing from 13,000 subscribers in late 2018 to over one million today. A Testament to Matterport’s SaaS Strategy This achievement is a testament to Matterport's market leadership in the 3D capture and digital twin industry. By significantly expanding its user base, Matterport has accelerated its subscription revenue growth and set the stage to achieve cash flow break-even from operations this year, enhancing the company's financial resilience and growth potential. The company’s SaaS-first approach has driven subscription revenue to 60% of total revenue, from less than 50% from just one year ago. The increase in subscribers correlates with heightened user engagement and adoption rates, further driving the company's revenue through subscription renewals, upsells, and the introduction of new services, such as Matterport’s Property Intelligence, that are tailored to the needs of a growing and diverse customer base. Fostering Innovation and Community Engagement Matterport's success is deeply rooted in its commitment to innovation and community engagement. The Capture Ubiquity strategy not only expanded the technology's accessibility but also fostered a thriving community of users who are integral to the ecosystem's growth. This user-centric approach has led to increased engagement, with users frequently utilizing the platform for various applications, from Property Marketing to Facilities Management, Design and Construction and beyond, further solidifying Matterport's position as a critical tool for numerous uses and industries. Continued Growth and Expansion Driven by AI-Powered Offerings Looking forward, Matterport believes that it is poised for continued growth and expansion as a result of deepened investments in the next-generation of its digital twins. In February, the company launched a collection of AI-powered features as part of its inaugural Winter 2024 Release: Automating the Future, transforming how people and businesses can extract data from properties. The datafication of built environments is laying the foundation for the next decade of advancements in property insights, enabling property stakeholders of all kinds – from buyers, sellers, and agents, to designers, builders and property managers – to maximize the value of any space. The acceleration of this work has also paved the way for the company’s upcoming generative AI solutions leveraging the organization’s experience in machine learning and data science to automatically reimagine and redesign a space within the digital twin. Initial features are expected to be available in beta with select customers later this year.

280. Kikkoman Leverages Matterport's Digital Twin Platform To Digitize Historic Soy Sauce Production Line

3/27/2024
SUNNYVALE, California, Tuesday, March 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), announced that Kikkoman Corporation, the world’s leading soy sauce producer, has used Matterport's Digital Twin Platform to create a digital twin of the company’s historic Goyogura soy sauce brewery. Originally established in 1939 as a dedicated facility supplying soy sauce to the Imperial Household Agency of Japan, the Goyogura brewery produces some of Kikkoman’s premium series of soy sauces, including the ‘Goyogura Shoyu’ and the D2C exclusive brand, 'Kikkoman Honten'. Although the brewery was moved to the current location in 2011 due to its age, it is still constructed with original elements of the historic facility like wooden barrels, stone walls, and gates, continuing to preserve its traditional brewing methods to supply the Imperial Household Agency with its world-renowned soy sauces. Using Matterport’s Property Marketing solution, Kikkoman aims to offer factory tours to consumers so that it can be shared with the world. Enriched with notes, guides and videos, the digital twin serves as an educational resource for understanding and preserving the traditions and culture of soy sauce production. The company is also considering Matterport’s Facilities Management solution for maintenance, repairs and measuring the space to reduce equipment management costs and time on site. By minimizing the need for personnel to physically enter and inspect the facility, the company would be able to save time and effort for hygiene management. The Goyogura brewery was captured quickly with Matterport’s Capture Services and the Pro3, minimizing disruption to the facility's operations and ensuring low-impact on the historic equipment. Equipped with lidar and RGB sensors, Matterport’s Pro3 produces both photo-realistic 3D tours and photos as well as detailed point cloud data that can be used for BIM (.ifc, .rvt) and CAD (.dwg) files. “As part of the branding of the ‘Goyogura Shoyu’ and the ‘Kikkoman Honten’ series, we believed that allowing customers to see the traditional brewing methods of the production site would create interest in the craftsmanship of our brewing process,” said Kaname Tsuji, Manager of the EC Strategy Group, Products Management Division. “Having seen the accuracy and smoothness of the technology, we considered Matterport capable of conveying the reality of the Goyogura brewery, providing access to areas of the facility which visitors cannot step in. We hope that through this special access, including views of the interior of our cedar brewing barrels, which are usually seen through glass, we will delight our customers as part of our exhibitions and communication on the D2C exclusive 'Kikkoman Honten'.” “We are honored that Kikkoman, a symbol of Japanese food culture, is using our services,” said Howard Xiao, President and Operating Officer of Matterport Japan K.K. “We hope that by utilizing Matterport, the charm and craftsmanship of traditional soy sauce production will be passed on to generations to come, not only in Japan but also overseas. We also look forward to supporting Kikkoman’s consideration of uses in the future, such as our Facilities Management solutions, using the power of our digital twin platform as part of this journey.” The 'Goyogura Shoyu Brewery' is part of Matterport Japan’s 'Connecting Culture and the Future with Digital Twins' project, which aims to digitize and widely share Japan's cultural properties and historical buildings such as Aso Shrine, Tenzan Sake Brewery and others.

In addition to Matterport’s digital twin technology which powers ARTOGO’s virtual exhibits, ARTOGO utilizes Matterport’s developer tools to create unique, online experiences that are tailored to the needs of the arts and culture sector. “When we first began exploring the digital experience of online exhibitions in 2019, we looked at many different ways to digitalise exhibitions and create a platform where the public could browse at will,” said Howard Yang, Cofounder and CEO at ARTOGO. “After assessing different solutions, it was clear that Matterport’s 3D technology was the right choice. Through our use of the Matterport digital twins, we have elevated the digital visitor experience to such heights that it now attracts paying customers.” The online pay-to-visit model is a huge boon for the arts and cultural sector, creating a new stream of revenue with significant potential to attract visitors from around the world. In 2024, ARTOGO plans to launch more than 20 paid experiences for exhibitions around the world, anticipating these experiences will reach a new milestone of 100,000 ticket sales. "Historically, art has been exclusive to a very select few. ARTOGO is proving that with our immersive 3D technology, art can be shared, preserved, and appreciated in a format that is much more accessible to all walks of life,” said Jay Remley, Chief Revenue Officer, Matterport. “ARTOGO is driving innovation in the arts across Asia and defining the premium digital exhibition experience that people are finally willing to pay for. We look forward to supporting their growth to make it easier for people to engage with art, design and culture, globally.” Matterport has partnered with leading institutions to digitize the world’s most exclusive and unique art and design collections to make them accessible to the world. This has included the digitization of Design Miami/ Basel, Design Miami/ and the Miami Design District, as well as the first-of-its-kind digital presentation of the private collection of Robin Eley x David Korins for its gallery opening.
